Dante's Equation - Jane Jensen
Jane Elizabeth Smith in 1963 in Palmerton, Pennsylvania. She received a BA in Computer Science from Anderson University in Indiana and worked as a systems programmer for Hewlett-Packard. Her love of writing eventually led her into the computer gaming community where Jane established her reputation with Gabriel Knight. The Gabriel Knight PC games are supernatural mysteries done in an adventure game style and are some of the most story-intensive games ever developed. All three Gabriel Knight titles won industry awards. Jane's next goal was to publish a novel and in 1996 she published the first of her two novelizations of the Gabriel Knight games. In 1999, her first original novel, Millennium Rising, was published in hard cover by Del Rey and was also released as an audiobook and mass market paperback (retitled Judgment Day). Between 1999 and 2002, Jane focused on her fourth book, Dante's Equation, which will be released by Del Rey in the U.S. in July '03 and by Little Brown in the U.K. In 2002 she co-founded a company called Oberon Media, which is focused on developing, and publishing, games for the casual game market online. All of Jensen's fiction work incorporates her passions -- history, the occult, philosophy and religion. She lives in Seattle with her husband, Robert Holmes, and her step-daughter, Raleigh.
Rabbi Aharon Handalman's expertise with Torah code -- rearranging words and letters in the Bible -- has uncovered a man's name. Who is Yosef Kobinski, and why did God hide his name in his sacred text? To find the answers, Aharon begins an investigation and discovers that Kobinski, a Polish rabbi and victim of the Holocaust, was not only a mystic but also a brilliant physicist who authored what may be the most important lost work in human history.
In Seattle, Jill Talcott's work with energy wave equations is being linked to Yosef Kobinski, who claimed nearly fifty years ago that he discovered an actual physical law of good and evil. But when Jill's lab explodes, she is forced to flee for her life, realizing that her cutting-edge research is far more dangerous than she ever imagined, and that powerful people are not only on Kobinski's trail but on hers as well.
Now Jill, her research partner, and a writer fascinated by Kobinski are all about to meet Handalman in Poland -- all four desperate to solve the astonishing riddle. Searching through the past, they trace Kobinski to a clearing in the woods near Auschwitz. And in that clearing they come face-to-face with the inexplicable: that Kobinski, drawing on his own alchemy of science and Kabbalah, made himself vanish from the death camp in a blaze of fire like the prophets of old. With intelligence officers hot on their trail, the investigators have no choice. They must follow Kobinski -- to wherever he may have gone . . .
From a desperate race to discover and then protect a deadly new technology on Earth, to a confrontation with Heavens and Hells beyond our universe, Dante's Equation explores the relationship between science and the divine, good and evil, physics and metaphysics.
